Nick the Wolf in the distant Closet-land
With words, colors and our desire for a better world as our ammunition, we dreamed of the story of young Nick, wanted to take it out of the closet, and share it with our friends.
We believe, much like words and colors being able to coexist providing a meaningful whole, that this can apply for people too.
Our own heroes have colorful hair, our own brushes draw moving lines, our words speak from the heart about everything we thought different out of ignorance or fear when we were younger…
Growing up, we realized that maybe in the end what we were most afraid of was ourselves, the world and their opinion.
Growing up, we managed to learn about ourselves, love us, and now it’s time to get to know and love others. Because in the end we are all “different” and this world is beautiful in its diversity…

A fairy tale about diversity, social exclusion and the fear that ignorance and the unknown cause in our lives.
